Microsoft is wrapping up Windows 7 with release just around the corner, the company is also looking forward to the next version of Windows. In this context, Microsoft already confirmed planning for Windows 8 had started long before Windows 7 was even close to RC stage. At the same time, Microsoft has also started hiring people to work on specific future features that’ll end up in Windows 8. Ray Ozzie, Microsoft chief software architect, managed to offer confirmation of this to BBC. Asked whether Windows 7 would be the last dedicated version of Windows that Microsoft would release, Ozzie replied “No, by no means.”
